Women’s Wellness Check

Our cervical smears by our fully trained and qualified nurses. A cervical smear takes 30 minutes, and appointments are available throughout the day or during our dedicated smear clinics between 5-6pm from Monday to Thursday.

Once the sample is taken, the sample is then tested for abnormal cell changes and STI symptoms.

All women who have cervical smears are part of The National Cervical Screening Programme, unless they specifically state that they do not want to be. We recommend that all women stay within the programme due to the following benefits:  

- Availability of records to you, your smear taker and the laboratory reading your tests

- Automatic reminder letters when you are overdue for having a cervical smear test

- Checks to ensure the right follow-up after an abnormal smear test

- Planning for the needs of different ethnic groups

The programme is checked regularly to see that it is working well and it is measured against National Quality Standards to help all women get the best possible screening and treatment.

What happens during an immigration medical?

During the medical you’ll have two consultations, one with a nurse and the second with a doctor. We endeavour to make these appointments one after the other, but depending on your urgency this may not always be possible.

What happens during the nurse consultation?

The nurse consultation will take approximately 45 minutes. During this time we’ll complete a questionnaire about your health, as well as take measurements of you height and weight. We then take a digital photo which is uploaded to your eMedical case file.

We’ll also do the following tests:

  • Eye test
    Please bring you glasses or contacts with you if you wear them
  • Urine Test
    This is required from all applicants 5 years of age and older.

    If you are female, please note that this test cannot be taken during your period and 4-6 days after. To save you the inconvenience of having to repeat the test, please book your appointment with this in mind.

    We recommend drinking a glass of water half an hour before your appointment to prepare for the urine test.
  • Blood test
    This is required if you are 15 years or older.

What happens during the doctor consultation?

Your consultation with a doctor will take approximately 15 minute appointments. This is a full physical examination, during which time you will need to remove all clothing except your underwear. The examination will involve contact with the doctor.

If you’re a woman over the age of 45 you will also require a breast examination, unless you've had one of the following within the last six months and can provide the results of the exam:

  • Breast examination
  • Mammogram
  • Ultrasound
  • MRI

You comfort is important to us so let us know if you prefer either a male or female doctor.

If you have any questions about either of the above consultations, please raise them when you book your medical. You can also questions at any stage of the process if you are unsure.
